Support the 2018 Voiceworks Subscribe-a-thon!
Voiceworks and Express Media are excited to announce the 2018 Voiceworks Subscribe-a-thon, a subscriber campaign designed to raise funds to publish Voiceworks in 2018 and beyond!
The Subscribe-a-thon will run from 5-23 November. During this time, we call upon our readers and followers to support the campaign, to ensure Voiceworks can continue to provide opportunities to young creators.
Voiceworks is created through the work of our Editorial Committee, a team of emerging editors under the age of twenty-five. This autonomous space for young people is immeasurable, with our peer-to-peer feedback and creative collaboration filling a growing gap in the educational and arts sector.
Says Romy Ash, author of Floundering:
“Every Monday night for four years I volunteered for Voiceworks’ Editorial Committee. That room full of passionate writers was so important to me… and my writing was so much better for it.”
Voiceworks creates the invaluable opportunity for youth to work together critically and creatively, using storytelling as medium of community building, reflected in the words of Benjamin Law, author of Gaysia:
“[Voiceworks] was the only publication that gave me robust and professional editorial feedback through its editorial committee—a vital facility that continues to this day and is still utterly rare in the world of publishing.”
But, we can’t exist without the support of our community. In order to continue paying our storytellers and printing four issues a year, we rely on subscribers and generous donations. Your $60 subscription will not only help us cover costs, but is proof of your investment in young Australian voices. Plus, everyone buying or renewing their print subscription to Voiceworks between 5 November and 23 November will go in the draw to win book packs, subscriptions and tickets to events from our favourite magazines, organisations and festivals!
Below are just a few of our friends who have generously donated prizes:
